Guess what… We had school yesterday! Throughout the day Thursday I exchanged messages with a few of my teacher friends and we all agreed, the decision was a toss-up. The temperatures were forecasted to be the coldest they had been all week, but the streets were finally ice/snow free. Around 7 p.m. the county announced that schools would open with a 2-hour delay. I heard parents rejoicing and students cursing in my head – it was a symphony of sound.
The day was short – I taught for an hour – but it was fun. All of the students wanted to share their snow day stories… A handful did Rainbow Loom all day every day, a few baked/cooked, a lot played in the snow (only one got a concussion), and none of them studied their multiplication facts. (un)Surprisingly they begged for no homework over the weekend. Sorry kids, your pouty faces were adorable but your arguments were weak.
waffles last weekend, the BEST french toast this weekend
This morning I woke up at 5 a.m. My body is like clockwork everyday, weekends included. I watched an episode of 20/20 (because it featured a local news story) and an episode of 100 Days of Summer. Both were okay, nothing great. But what was great was the french toast that I ate and the website that I found while browsing Pinterest…

I’ve got 7 miles to run this morning (on the treadmill, sidewalks are still covered with ice) and Ryan’s coming with me to do weights – he hasn’t been to the gym for months because of his ankle surgery so it’s a pretty big deal! Hopefully something good is on TV or y’all are sharing lots of interesting pictures on Instagram because I’d rather brave the cold than run that long on the dreadmill if given the choice.

Question: What’s your favorite pick-me-up when you’re low on energy? I’m not sure if I’m getting sick or just exhausted from a lack of sleep, but my energy tank is running on low this morning.
